NBA 07 Screenshots



The most detailed and engaging NBA experience both on the court and behind the scenes is back again with NBA ’07 for the PlayStation®2 computer entertainment system. Picking up where last year’s game left off, NBA ’07 hits the hardwood with new features, enhanced gameplay, and a return to the immersive inside experience of life in the league by introducing “The Life: Volume 2."

An all-new Smart Shot Indicator provides a visual gauge of the impact defense has on shot opportunities, and a new Power Boarding System is now in place to offer a true 3D approach for players to position themselves for rebounds. Additionally, NBA ’07 includes refined core gameplay elements including new mechanics for stealing, passing, and shot selection as well as more intuitive Artificial Intelligence (AI).

Officially licensed by the NBA, more than a dozen mini-games are available in NBA ’07 including favorites such as 21, Own the Court, and 3-Point Shootout. “Showtime Gameplay" returns, providing players the opportunity to manage and balance a variety of game time elements including temperamental crowds, eager teammates, and individual basketball skills. With online access to compete in a variety of leagues and tournaments, EyeToy™ functionality, and an all-new soundtrack, NBA '07 is prepared to deliver the most realistic professional basketball experience available - on and off the courts.
